Summer may technically be coming to end, but don’t fret. No one knows better than our plugged-in team of writers how many cool things there are to get out and do during the fall months. We asked them to give us a sneak peak of what’s on their autumn must-do lists. Click through the slideshow to meet them and to hear their picks, and then start planning your own fall adventures!

In the fall, we love Sonoma for easy day-tripping. One of our favorite outings starts with Train Town (feels way less crowded once summer's over), followed by lunch (or dinner, if you got a late start!) and good people watching just a few minutes down the road at Historic Sonoma Plaza, the town's central square. Our latest go-tos for yummy stuff: Burgers and Vine and homemade scoops next door. The finale: playtime right on the square. With 2 playgrounds, you could bring a bottle (or box) of wine (because this!) for a bit of grown up time while the kids get their energy out.
